Vocational Education & Training
DECD is committed to providing students in South Australian government schools with access to Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualifications that are accredited within the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) and can be recognised within the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE). The VET for Schools Policy provides direction to schools to assist and enable young people to embark on a relevant VET training pathway and complete their SACE.
The VET for Schools Policy aims to provide secondary students with:
access to VET Industry Pathways Programs offered by schools operating in partnership with other local schools, industry and training providers and linked to career development programs in schools
opportunities for Certificate III post school pathways in industries experiencing skill shortages
school-based apprentices and trainees that lead to full time apprenticeships and traineeships
- student and parent satisfaction with training to industry standards and career opportunities in industries experiencing skill shortages.
There are a range of resources below for Industry Pathways Programs (IPPs) in a range of industry areas.
For Further Information on School based Apprenticeships please go to our website http://www.tradeschoolsforthefuture.sa.edu.au/contact-us and contact the Apprenticeship Broker for your school.

Industry Pathways Program - Numeracy
The resources, plans, assessment tasks, ideas for tasks and entrance tests are made available to assist you in teaching the Numeracy component of an Industry Pathways program within SACE Mathematics Pathways. They will continually be updated, added to and improved. They have been collected, designed and written by Mathematics teachers with some Industry input.
Some of the material is specific to the 6 industries mentioned below and some are more generic. It is clear that, a course such as this in which the goal is for the learning and assessment to reflect the mathematical problems which occur in a particular industry context, it is necessary that the maths teacher has some understanding and/or experience of that context. This understanding can be achieved in a number of ways e.g. by working with the relevant VET teacher in the school, by interacting with industry people or by participating in a regional group of IPP maths teachers.
